30 Days of Night

So, last night’s malt beverage of choice was Shiner Bohemian Black Lager, and the movie was 30 Days of Night.  The lager was good and the movie was bad, which is exactly how I expected it to work out.  
 
30 Days of Night is about an isolated little town in Alaska which shuts down for 30 days each year when the sun falls below the horizon for an entire month.  Usually it’s an uneventful time for the town, as most of the townspeople relocate for the duration of the darkness, but this year something sinister comes with the night.  A mob of violent bloodsucking vampires descend upon the town and over take those who stayed behind.  
It’s a violent movie complete with squirting blood and severed limbs.  All in all, it was alright, but the vampires were mostly one-dimensional and not all that intelligent. I found myself thinking that they should have been able to over take the town with ease; but instead, their onslaught lasted for weeks.  You’ll have to watch to see what happens.  It’s mildly entertaining and ends in an unexpected way.
